GUEST,Pat manchester sports guild folk club (154* d) RE: manchester sports guild folk club 12 Oct 09


Hi - only recently talking about the MSG so I'm delighted to find this. I don't think I was as regular as most of you lot though. i was just turning on to folk/trad irish from 1970-1974 and the trad irish turned into my passion. I don't know if anyone remembers my mate Anna (mandolin) and me Pat (tin whistle), we used to go to the Monday singers night and play a few tunes. I remember Planxty playing and donal lunny fluffing Angie on the guitar (I still cringe when I think about it). How awful for that to be an abiding memory when everything else he does is so fantastic!! All the names you mention are very familiar but I can't put faces to them. Must be old age, the memory is banjaxed. Kelly and Walsh used to host the Mondays when we went and the folk was in the basement. I was once upstairs for a folk concert. We also used to go to the Crown and Anchor to see the Beggarmen. Aaah well. Patx
